Charlie & the Moonhearts make no bones about playing ‘60s-inspired rock’n’roll from the same local scene that has produced acts such as Ty Segall/Tradional Fools, Audacity, Thee Makeout Party, and many, many more. Lots of soul, lots of rhythm. It’s garagey, it’s surfy, and it’s time-tested rock’n’roll that’s produced for pool parties and other assorted good times. Teen Anger hail from Toronto and the music is much more frigid. While still heavy on the ‘60s influence, they twist the sound into a damaged, curdled knot. Not as abrasive as some, less approachable than most. Still good, reverbed-to-hell rock.
